Sightseeing Around Asakusa by Rickshaw!

Rickshaws are convenient for sightseeing in Asakusa!

Asakusa has many places to see, and you will inevitably run out of time with the long list of places to visit. That’s why we recommend a rickshaw experience with a driver who is familiar with Asakusa. You can enjoy sightseeing in Asakusa while being guided by a rickshaw driver through the city and absorbing the atmosphere of Asakusa. Furthermore, they will teach you special trivia, so even if you have visited Asakusa several times, you may discover something new. This time, we would like to introduce a long-established rickshaw company, Jidaiya.

Jidaiya Rickshaws

Jidaiya is a long-established rickshaw company founded in 1987. It is a popular store that handles wedding rickshaws, event rickshaws, and various events ranging from sightseeing tours of Asakusa to Japanese cultural experiences. Jidaiya is the only rickshaw that can enter Tokyo Skytree Town®, a popular sightseeing spot near Asakusa.
